The contingent recruitment model is a rollercoaster ride. Chaotic, unpredictable, inconsistent and rife with uncertainty of what’s to come. Not only does the contingent approach make it tough to foster growth in your business, but it also leads to unreliable forecasts, fragile client relationships, and the demoralisation of even the most talented consultants. But what if there was a solution? Enter the headhunting coach – an expert guide who helps aspiring headhunters navigate the complexities of the retained search industry. We have developed a tailored training course that is specifically designed for selling and delivering retained search solutions. The best bit? It genuinely works.

Elevate Your Executive Search Game with a Headhunting Coach

If your aim is to:

  • Secure consistent retainers
  • Inspire and enable your consultants to fulfil their potential
  • Become a strategic partner to your clients
  • Construct a future with long-term, forecastable revenue

Then Retrained Search can help. This is more than just training; it’s a roadmap to revolutionise your recruitment approach and take your consultancy to uncharted heights.

Understanding the Headhunting Industry

Executive search, often referred to as headhunting, involves identifying and recruiting the best talent for key positions. As the landscape evolves, so do the challenges. This is where a headhunting coach steps in. A headhunting coach serves as a mentor, strategist, and educator. They possess in-depth knowledge of the industry, honed skills, and valuable insights that guide aspiring headhunters toward success. We have been exactly where you are now. We’ve worked for executive search firms, we’ve worked contingently, and we’ve pitched and delivered retainers whilst working for traditionally contingent recruitment agencies. The best part is – in this market, you’ve probably already engaged in executive search. Now it’s time to get paid for it.  

How a Headhunting Coach Impacts Success

As well as learning to successfully transition their business from contingent to retained, consultants are provided with a robust and, crucially, repeatable process to ensure consistent success and growth. From the initial pitch to objection handling and delivering the project, our headhunting coaches empower consultants to tackle common challenges with finesse.
